We started our day with a bit of breakfast from McDonalds.
Janet had a bacon & egg roll
Then we caught a tram to the Melbourne Zoo. We were a bit early, so we had to wander around aimessly for a while waiting for it to open! The zoo was the place I really wanted to go to while we were in Melbourne. And I took about a million photos, so will share just a few here...
Gorilla! - We stood and wached the gorillas for ages - they were enjoying a feed of spinach!
We also got to see the baby elephant!!
And of course, my favourite - Giraffes! Janet told me that they didn't have giraffes at this zoo, so I was very excited to see that they actually did!!
After the zoo, we hopped back on the tram, and jumped off at the Queen Victoria Markets for a quick look around.
we managed to squeeze in time for some lunch
yes, we ate churros for lunch. We shared a bag of 7. for $6. delicious! Although I did get rather covered in icing sugar!
We then headed for Federation Square, because we had tickets for a very important event.
This is the whole reason we were in Melbourne!!
The Abba World exhibition was really good! They had heaps of the actual costumes, instuments and other ABBA memorabillia, as well as interactive sections where you got to sing with ABBA, dance in a video clip etc etc. We had a great time!
Of course, all that ABBA-ing makes you hungry, so we went over the road to "Lord of the Fries" for some dinner!!
how exciting! a vegetarian burger place!!! I want one in Brisbane!! please!!!
JAnet had the French-Canadian Fries, or Poutine, which was fries with cheese and gravy
I went for an original burger, which was fantastic! loved it!! the burger patty was delicious, the sauces, the pickle, everything was just as a burger should be!
And after all that healthy eating (just as well we also did A LOT of walking) it was back to our hotel for some sleep!
